Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year just passed and we enjoyed all the festivities that come along with living near Chinatown. We love living in the International District here in downtown Seattle... because we're just blocks away from all the delicious, cheap food! But we have also really enjoyed learning more about this culture that was sort of a mystery to us. Recently we received a new neighbor who's originally from China and just moved here to take a job from Missouri where he was studying for his PhD for four years. It's been very interesting learning about the contrast of his life growing up in China to our lives here in the U.S. The other day we took him to our favorite bubble tea spot to teach him Settlers of Catan. He learned it in like five seconds and loved it! So needless to say, we're very pleased. :) Check out our videos below to learn more!


This is the typical dragon/lion dancing you may have seen before. Haven't figured out whether it's a lion, a dragon, or both. That's lettuce they're spitting out.

Now this was something brand new for us. Many of the restaurants had $2 food specials so we tried out a Hong Kong style Egg Puff Waffle and it did not disappoint!


  1. Where can I get one of those egg puff waffle makers!?!?! ;-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I had those puff things at the Richmond Night Market this summer! (Christy, remember when we went there a few summers ago?). So yummy...
